This is a rare sight….me eating white, starchy carbs with no nutritional value.  BUT, ya know…sometimes when in Rome…you gotta try it.  Normally I don’t eat white, starchy carbs because they make me feel lethargic, bloated, gassy and tired.  I don’t like feeling like that.  But I always USED to without even knowing it until I quit.  I did a little experiment on myself.  I gave them up for a week to see if it would make a difference– and VOILA!  It did!  The bloatedness, gassiness, lethargy all went away.  My head became clearer and I realized that those types of carbs weren’t good for me.  Now is that to say I never eat that kind of stuff?  No–I believe in the 90/10 rule.  I try to eat beautifully 90% of the time and 10% I can live and still enjoy life without feeling deprived.  Want to know more about how it all works?  I would love to share with you.



When was the last time you went to the beach let alone felt comfortable wearing shorts?  I haven’t always felt comfortable in shorts.  In fact, I know all to well what it’s like to want to hide your legs…your butt….well basically ANYTHING that showed skin.  I hated not feeling comfortable in my own skin.  I know it affected my personality, my relationships, my confidence….it affected EVERYTHING.  I never wanted to go out in public, I HATED having my picture taken.  But most of all it was depressing.  I knew I had to change or I felt like I was going to die.  So, I did the hardest thing of all….I asked for help!  God forbid we ask for help right?  Why is that so hard for us sometimes?  Well, turns out it was the best thing I have ever done for ME!  YES–I invested in ME!  I guess I WAS worth it after all.  But here’s the best part…it’s what made me ME!  I never would have believed that I would be able to return the favor, pay it forwad and help others on their journey to health and fitness.  It’s now my life’s passion and MISSION to help others transform their lives!  Destiny is truly an amazing thing….
